Ocasio-Cortez Makes Word Salad in Interview With CNN’s Cuomo

She’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Published

A Democrat candidate of the U.S. House of Representatives had a staggeringly mind-numbing interview last night with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, wherein she failed to recognize the elected leader of her own party, and made a mockery of socialized healthcare.

“Well, I don’t think there’s any one head, you know – we are a collective, this is a movement,” said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez regarding the leader of Democrat party. “I don’t think parties are ever about one person but they’re about how the contributions each one person gives to the party. So I think that there are really exciting folks in the party.”

Cuomo pressed, telling Ocasio-Cortez that as House Minority Leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is indeed the leader of the party, forcing Ocasio-Cortez to awkwardly capitulate.

“Well I think, absolutely, right now, she is – she is – I mean, Speaker – rather Leader Pelosi – hopefully, um, we’ll see, she is the current leader of the party and I think that the party absolutely does have its leadership in the House,” she said. “We have our leadership in the Senate as well.”

On the subject of healthcare, which Ocasio-Cortez wants to give to everyone “for free,” she was equally vacuous.

“So first of all, the thing that we need to realize is people talk about the sticker shock of Medicare for all, they do not talk about the sticker shock of the cost of our existing system,” she said. “You know in a Koch Brothers-funded, you know, study – if any study is going to try to be a little bit slanted it’s going to be one funded by the Koch Brothers, it shows that Medicare for all is actually much more – is actually much cheaper than the system we pay right now.”

She went on to admit that President Barack H. Obama’s Affordable Care Act is a tax, as cited by the Supreme Court, which his administration vehemently denied.

And then the grand finale.

“Americans have the sticker shock of healthcare as it is,” she said (astutely). “And what we’re also not talking about it is why aren’t we incorporating the cost of all the funeral expenses of those who died because they can’t afford access to healthcare.”

Not exactly the perfect pitch for socialized medicine.

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District

It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”

Published

on

Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”

“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”

This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
